Our Story

Our Story

Tim and I run a few businesses here is Richardson, Texas but Communion holds a special place in my heart. The entire concept was a combination of many things that Tim and I love and dream about, but were not sure it would every actually come to life. With so much support and team work we are proud of all that Communion has become and has to offer our fun city.

When we moved here, in the summer of 2013, we always felt something was missing in the city we loved so much. Early on, we had a vision to combine great coffee, food, and a fun work environment. Over the course of several years, locations came and went but nothing seemed to be the right fit at the right time. As we continued to talk to people in the community and we knew the need was growing. Then, in the fall of 2016, the old auto shop on Lockwood, just off Hwy 75 and Belt Line Road, came up for sale. Timing and financing lined up and we found ourselves the new owners of an old auto shop garage complete with hydraulic lifts and past service paperwork. As the design work began on Communion we knew it was going to be a special place for Richardson to gather and enjoy great food while working with others in the community.

The building allowed us to have space for in the front for a coffee shop and on one side a restaurant and the other side a separate dedicated space for those wanting to have an open or dedicated office area to work. Once the interior and design of the building was complete, we knew this place would also be a great venue for hosting public or private events. Tim was very hands on during the construction using his background in home building to be the general contractor for the project. He recruited his brothers and dad to take part in the construction and capital. The combination of the Kahle men produced a unique place with many of the wood and metal pieces being handcrafted onsite during construction. I worked behind the scenes setting up the company infrastructure and grew a lot as a business owner.  Along the journey we began to recruit a team that would be able to bring the vision of Communion to life. 

We opened our doors in the fall of 2017 and have enjoyed hosting so many guests. Over the past couple of years we have enjoyed many changes and always hope Communion is a place people come to enjoy eating, working and playing!

Thank you for taking the time to visit us and we hope to see you soon! Please do not hesitate to contact our all star guest services team if you have any questions or comments.

May your home be blessed,

Amy Kahle is both co-owner and co-founder of Communion with husband, Tim. She loves time with her family and knows hard work is at the center of building a home and a business. Born and raised in the Lone Star State she called Fort Worth home until she moved to Waco for college. After graduating from Baylor University's Hankamer School of Business with a Marketing degree she moved to McKinney to start her career. To most, working in the senior housing development industry might seem like a slow start but Amy quickly learned the world of business can look many different ways. While working with her dad over the course of 10 years she enjoyed developing and selling real estate on senior campus's in three cities.
In 2012 Amy and Tim welcomed their first child, Samuel, and began to build their family. Over the next 35 months Ruthie and twins Judah and Abigail also joined the Kahle family creating lots fun and plenty of wonderful chaos. During the early years of their young family Amy and Tim talked and dreamed of a fun place to bring people to gather and enjoy life in community.
It was not long until the dream became something real and Amy found herself enjoying setting up the operations side of Communion and keeping many of the details organized. Her favorite part of any project is taking the chaos and organizing it into something that thrives. Her dedication to plan, create, host, and bring things to order is a gift that has purpose and has touched many aspects of Communion. Her passion for order and creating a space for people to gather is complimented by Tim's love for creativity and people. Together their gifts have brought a unique experience for people to enjoy and live life in community.
Between running Communion and her many projects, Amy enjoys time with her family, baking and traveling. Communion is very special to her and she hopes it can be a creative environment for individuals and families to experience fellowship and fun while working or gathered around a table.
